The RedmonBill reviewer @newegg was just 1 particular case, I doubt all the others negative reviewers are all biased towards Seagate. And it's not just Newegg reviews (which is US), I'm from The Netherlands and overhere the reviews on forums (for St2000Dl003) are, lets say modest to negative. It doesn't bring me much confidence to go ahead and still use this particular model (ST2000DL004).
Meanwhile, which is also interesting, Seagate's lips are tight shut.

I have lots of hard disks and I have a page on my IT site with statistics on the shop experience.

actually 3TB USB desktop disks are not expensive and they make for an excellent backup solution
smaller USB portable disks are somewhat smaller due to the smaller form factor

the tech sector is chock full of screwups, nobody is perfect
my disks all fine save for the 2x 500GB disks that died recently
